1To minimize grease I fry the hamburger and sausage in a pan. I don't cook it all the way just down enough to drain grease out of it a good 20 mins. It will finish in the crock pot. Drain the meat good. Then add to the crock pot.
2While your meat is cooking this gives you time to cut the garlic diced pieces & the red onion into long pieces like straws. Once the meat is in the crock pot add the tomatoes, garlic, onions, beans,seasoning salt, vegetable juice and tomato sauce.
3Let this cook over night or during the time your at work. Let cook for min of 4 hours.
Please let cool down before trying it out. It will be very hot and burn you mouth.
Once cooled add crackers if you want and enjoy.
Its simply yummy. I sometimes put it into bread bowls and add shredded cheese during the winter. kids love to eat it all when they come in from playing outside.
